Peach Orchard Mini-kit freebie

It’s week three for the Designer Darling contest at Stuff to Scrap. It’s starting to suck the life out of me a little. This week we were supposed to be inspired by this picture and a story that Deanna of Flower Scraps told us.


“Last summer my kids and I went to a peach farm where we had a blast picking and eating peaches. The kids loved it - They ate 2 peaches each! We filled 3 buckets of peaches! We took them home and canned most of them. We made yummy peach cobblers and ate our fill of fresh peaches. Even now, every time I open a jar of our home canned peaches, my mouth waters and I remember that fun day.”

She also included a picture of her son, eating a huge peach, with juice running down his arm. I loved it. He was wearing an orange shirt with navy blue stripes. I was really inspired by that little boy. I came up with a palette for a boys kit with orange, green, brown, navy, and yellow, a construction theme.

I tried to work with it. I couldn’t get it to go together. For two days I muddled over a different palette, chosen from the picture above. Soft. Pinky peach. Baby blue. Silver. In my stupor on the boys kit, I shuffled over to the other colors to see how it would work. I started with a tree that my cousin suggested should be in the kit.

I couldn’t stop designing. Idea after idea came to me. I had to write the ideas down so they didn’t leave me before I was done designing the previous piece. It came together so easily, I wondered why I ever wanted to try the other palette. So now I have for you…Peach Orchard. Are you ready for Spring? I know I am.

I love the kit with these soft colors. If you get a chance take a look at the palette I did use. Very similar to the one you started with! LOL
